    When the siren sounded to start the race I grabbed my first hot dog and started to eat in massive mouthfuls. I could see thousands of spectators gazing at ME and not really taking much notice of the other competitors who were slowly struggling behind reach to their 41st hot dog when I grabbed my 59th hot dog. I can hear the spectators yelling my name “JOEY, JOEY, JOEY,JOEY!!!” My girlfriend was jumping up and down at the front of my table yelling and telling me I could do it. When the final siren went off everybody screamed in excitement and my girlfriend reached out towards my hand saying “You did fantastic” I reached out to her hand and squeezed it tightly saying “I DID IT!!!”

    OMP:
    I reached the bench where I was then watched by the largest crowd I had ever seen, which was enormous. Fans were screaming their lungs out at me, asking me for snaps and autographs. I felt amazing to be in such a popular and well known position. But the nerves were still crackling, I mean, what if I did not finish and win. I guess it was pretty scary. All of a sudden the big horn went off signalling the start of the race. As soon as it went I leaped out an grabbed a hot dog and scoffed it. I was surprisingly hungry. Before I even finished chewing the first one I through another one into my mouth, and another, and another. At times, I needed a sip of water to wash it down. I could hear was the commentator saying “Chestnut’s in the lead! He is on 56 points!” Then later: “Chestnut’s on 68 and now 69! And it looks like he’s won cause he was the last one to stop! Yes! Joey Chestnut has done it again!” I felt sooooooooooooo happy! I was a success! Again! Hooray!😊
